Clip to ScrapBook #3

Iíve had the benefit (if you can look at it that way) of being royally screwed multiple times in my teaching career. I mean, screwed in ways you canít imagine.

Each time I got screwed it dimmed a little bit of my light. It also had the benefit of teaching me that this is a job.

I care about my students.

I also know that any of my coworkers are capable of stabbing me in the back just to watch me bleed. I know admin has favorites (and Iím never it). I know theyíll fire you at the drop of a hat for not reason. I know theyíll believe kids and parents over you all the tine. Every time. I know itís a job. So whatís best for you.

I know Iíve never put this in writing or put myself out there like this because not everyone will agree. Thatís ok. I wouldnít wish some of my experiences on my worst enemy. I might feel differently if I hadnít had the experiences that Iíve had.
